Review | NYX Glitters & Pigments
If you've been following my blog for a while, you may remember that I posted about a NYX Cosmetics event that I attended back in October (see post here). If you do remember that, you may also recall that I received a bag full of NYX goodies after the party; A bunch of them being their Pigments & Glitters, which I'll be talking about today.
For the longest time, I've been lusting over some cosmetic glitter after purchasing one of the Makeup Geek's Sparklers. So when I opened up the goodie bag and saw these bad boys, I was over the moon and super excited to try them out. I also noted later that a few of them were pigments, but I was still extremely thrilled to put them to work. I've tried these glitters & pigments a few times since I received them and I'm ready to share my thoughts on them -
m y c o l l e c t i o n
Glitter in Copper* - This shade has to be my favourite of the two NYX glitters I have. It's a gorgeous copper shade which is what I've been wanting to add to my collection for the longest time. I love that the glitter isn't too chunky. It looks absolutely stunning on the lids. To make the glitter stick on my lids, I use the NYX Glitter Primer* and it keeps the glitter on all day.
Glitter in Silver* - This glitter is almost as beautiful as Copper, but I do have to complain about the chunkiness of the glitters in this one compared to the other. The glitters are extremely larger in comparison, and that's something I'm not very fond of. Though I'm a big fan of the silver glitter shade - it really sparkles in the light - I like it less because of the whole chunkiness thing.
Pigment in Venetian* - I have nothing but good things to say about this pigment. It's amazingly pigmented and such a pretty copper shade. It definitely pairs well with the Copper glitter. I'd have to say this is my favourite one out of the pigments bunch and also the most wearable.
Pigment in Go H.A.M* - This shade is a bright yellow-gold colour. It's not the most wearable shade (maybe I'll be brave enough to wear this in the future) but it certainly is pigmented, which is a plus in my books.
Pigment in Luna* - Luna is a silver/almost-white shade. Out of the four pigments, this one is the least pigmented - meaning I'm not a big fan. If only this was much more pigmented, I think it would be my second favourite.
Pigment in Diamond* - Last, but not least, is Diamond. It's basically a silver and it is just as pigmented as the first two mentioned.
Both the glitters & pigments come in the same packaging and have a sifter on it, so the mess is little to none. As for the pigments, I like to apply them to my lid using a damp shader brush as I find that it gives me stronger pigmentation that way. All of them are very easy to blend, but I'd advise to be patient & be light-handed while blending; being heavy-handed may cause loss of intensity.
All in all, I definitely recommend these NYX Glitters & Pigments. Though if you're not a fan of chunky glitters like I am, try to swatch it in store if there are testers available. They both retail for less than C$10, so I'd say there's nothing to lose!
Products marked with a (*) were gifted to me for consideration. All opinions are my own.
